Sometimes, manufacturing operations need precision control for certain applications. Parker Hannifin offers many solutions in this area, available in Canada from Wainbee Limited. A key example is Parker’s innovative PAC, a programmable automation controller. This powerful EtherCAT-based device has a solid-state design that Parker has engineered specifically for demanding applications.
Built for the global machine market, the PAC combines machine logic, signal handling, and high-speed motion control into a performance-driven, standard-based, fan-less, and easy-to-mount din rail solution.
Standard USB and Ethernet ports
This programmable automation controller comes with a native, uninterrupted EtherCAT bus for high-speed I/O and motion control, plus a modular interface slot for third-party device communication, standard USB and Ethernet ports, and on-board SD program storage. Manufacturers can produce efficient, high-performance control systems based on the IEC 61131-3 and PLCopen Motion standards by programming the PAC with Parker’s own Automation Manager software.
The powerful, energy-efficient Intel Atom N2600 processor is another major benefit of this device from Wainbee. This feature allows fan-less operation while supporting dual-cores, 64-bit instructions, and Hyperthreading technology. Parker has eliminated all moving parts and integrated the PAC with removable, solid-state SD storage media, to create a robust, industrial-grade control solution.
This programmable automation controller serves users as a standard-based solution that consolidates advanced logic, multi-axis motion, signal handling, and web-published visualization into one instrument. This is how the PAC boosts developer efficiency as it eliminates the need for additional hardware and communication links. Other benefits include a single, intuitive environment for application development, industry-standard programming, machine-to-machine communication, and Intellectual Property protection methods.
Yet another advantage of with PAC: unprecedented connectivity for complimentary devices and network isolation for IT professionals. This is because of its standard dual LAN capability for network separation, built-in OPC server, Modbus TCP functionality, and the ability to integrate directly into Ethernet/IP and Profinet networks.
The PAC I/O system includes various modules for digital, analog, and temperature signals and communication interfaces. Examples of these modules include bus couplers, counters, and accessories.
